I've always loved fashion and decorating. I can sit and look at design pics for hours and this is definitely a huge part of where I draw inspiration for color and style. I've also been fortunate to travel through Europe and live in England and i'm sure that influences my style too. Although, I believe my deepest inspiration comes from my faith in Christ, from music that inspires my faith in him, and from life learning experiences. This is when things really become inspired and start to flow freely.
Each piece starts with a light to medium application of texture on a quality gallery wrapped canvas. Layers of fine acrylic paints, oil pastels, markings, scratches, words, or other mixed medias are applied with either pallet knives, brushes, rollers, and other applicators to add a foundational depth to the painting. The direction of each piece is then unified by a more simplistic softer approach of paints, oil pastels, and maybe metallics to create an original piece sealed with varnish for protection and illumination.
